All path parameters are required.

Name
Type
Description
ORG-ID
string
Unique identifier for the organization whose API Keys you want to retrieve. Use the /orgs endpoint to retrieve all organizations to which the authenticated user has access.

This endpoint might use any of the HTTP request query parameters available to all Atlas API resources. All of these are optional.

Name
Type
Necessity
Description
Default
pretty
boolean
Optional
Flag indicating whether the response body should be in a prettyprint format.
false
envelope
boolean
Optional

Flag indicating if Atlas should wrap the response in a JSON envelope.

This option may be needed for some API clients. These clients cannot access the HTTP response headers or status code. To remediate this, set envelope=true in the query.

For endpoints that return one result, the response body includes:

status
HTTP response code
envelope
Expected response body
false

At least one of the two body parameters are required.
